In case you missed it, Governor Hogan appeared on an ABC “Vote or Miss Out” special to encourage Americans to get involved and vote in state and local elections.
The one-hour program featured celebrities like Larry David, Dave Chappelle, Kevin Hart, and Lebron James, as well as political spouses Michelle Obama, Ann Romney, and Cindy McCain.
Governor Hogan argued in his message, “the work of local public servants isn’t glamorous. But it’s absolutely vital to our everyday lives.”
I’m Governor Larry Hogan from the great state of Maryland, home to the best crabs in America and the two-time Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens. Over the next few weeks we’re going to hear a lot about presidential politics.
But the vast majority of decisions that impact your everyday life aren’t actually made in The White House or in Washington DC. They’re made by state and local public servants across our country.
When your garbage isn’t picked up, your roads and bridges are crumbling, or your schools aren’t performing, you don’t call the President. You call the public official closest to your problems.
The work of local public servants isn’t glamorous. But it’s absolutely vital to our everyday lives.
So be sure to vote in the November general election – from the top to the bottom of the ballot.
